6.5 supports R4000 Indigo, all Indigo^2, all Indy, and anything later. A
Crimson needs 5.3 or 6.2, not 6.5. An R3000 Indigo needs 5.3 or earlier.

Actually, some of the older smaller machines run better with 5.3, but you
need a big collection of patches, some of which are hard to find on SGI's
"new improved" web site right now.
